If the allegation is true and the punch thrown by David Warner that hit Joe Roots face was for no reason and completely unprovoked, then a $11500 fine IS A COMPLETE JOKE. Is this how people who assault people get punished ?. David Warner earned millions in IPL for 6 weeks work the Fine should be assessed by what the player earns, not some poultry figure which does not hurt his Ego, Pride or Wallet. What will the next generation of young cricketers think ? its OK to assault somebody ? , the FINE will be next to nothing. David Warner should be sent home immediately,maybe he needs to have a Psychological examination of his mental state. DO NOT play him in the Ashes series please Australia ( if you have any Dignity and Pride), it does not matter how desperate you are to win the Ashes you need to stamp out Racism and Physical and Mental Abuse dished out by anybody in Cricket and make a PROPER example of BAD BEHAVIOR , SERIOUSLY $11 000 is a Travesty and Insulting to victims of Assault
